XOver errors

Post by Taomyn » Sun Jun 20, 2010 7:03 pm

I've been getting XOver error randomly for a while now and they happen to random groups at random times. There's no pattern I can see but they always cause the group header download to stick at "2" with the time to complete just ticking up to large amount of time. I have to reset the connection to stop them.

Just now I had two groups with errors:

Code: Select all

19:48:18 Error @ news-europe.giganews.com. Unable to Enter Group "alt.binaries.mp3". (.). (BS:5)
19:48:18 Receiving headers from news-europe.giganews.com. Range 227,705 to 435,982. Local Cache Pointer is at: 3,484,816.
19:48:18  * Article pointer seems has been reset on server (more than 5000 headers behind cache pointer). Resetting cached entries. Receiving all headers.
19:48:18 XOver Error : "news-europe.giganews.com" was unable to receive group headers.

Any idea why this keeps happening and maybe what I can do to prevent it? I've tried wiping the cache for the groups, un-subscribed and re-subscribed and they keep doing it again days/weeks later. I'm running v4b19 under Windows 7 x64.
